Every year Prairie Elementary School holds a contest for the classes that can collect the most box tops for the year. This year, Cindy Schumacher's first grade class came in first place with over 2000 box tops collected. They (along with kindergarten and third graders) were treated to lunch and games at the park.  All together, the school collected more than $1500 worth of box tops. This money goes towards playground equipment and activities for the kids. In the top picture are the kindergarten and first grade. Vikki Riener's third grade class is in the lower. All the kids at the school received an ice cream party for their hard work! Photos provided by Megan Rambo. Click on each photo for a larger view.
